Over eight months, he immersed himself in the local community, using his camera to capture the stories, struggles, and moments of people mired in homelessness. The project reflected his deep sense of empathy and respect for his subjects, allowing him to capture images that were both visually stunning and emotionally powerful. The images themselves conveyed the complex and multifaceted nature of homelessness. His use of composition and lighting brought viewers to a deeper and intimate understanding of the crisis. Ultimately, Adams' project brought significant attention to the issue of homelessness in the Eureka area and galvanized the community to take action.
